WARREN — Winning Futures, a nonprofit organization that inspires and prepares at-risk youth for success, raised more than $32,000 for its life skills, mentoring and scholarship programs at an Opening Day Party targeting business professionals on Monday.
Money raised at the event will support the Winning Futures’ mentoring programs in Detroit, Harper Woods, Madison Heights, Pontiac, and Warren, enabling high school students to partner with business mentors for the school year. Students will meet with their mentors on a weekly basis and complete fun, structured activities focused on character value development, goal setting, job readiness skills, and strategic five-year planning.
“Each year we are more and more amazed at the generosity and commitment of our sponsors and their guests,” said Kristina Marshall, President and CEO of Winning Futures. “Enabling us to provide mentors and scholarships to high school students that show great potential, the money raised at this event is integral to helping our kids reach their goals and continue their educational success. We truly thank each of our sponsors and all attendees for their continued support and charitable spirits. Together, we can make a difference in young people’s lives.”
